The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things, including a whole bunch of Battlefield Heroes details, Valve's unveiling of SteamWorks (the company's digital distribution answer to the NPD), new Team Fortress 2 achievements, and how Savage 2 just may be the very essence of PC gaming. Plus, we go all Retronauts and fondly recalls Turok: Dinosaur Hunter for the N64 and Aquanaut's Holiday for the PlayStation...

Host Jeff Green is gone on vacation. The inimitable Sean Molloy has moved away. But the Brodeo must go on, even if that means posing as a market study group, roaming the streets of Berkeley, and then recording more material in Robert Ashley?s bedroom.

|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2008-01-09|
It's an epic two-hour gasbagathon, as the GFW Radio crew, loaded up on MSG, share, pontificate, cajole, and wheedle their way through more Game of the Year discussion, including a fierce debate on the level design of Half Life 2: Episode 2 versus ... Peggle. Huh? Also, Ryan goes ape**** over Puzzle Quest, and Jeff schools the kids on the backstory behind Mayor McCheese and the Hamburglar! Length: 1:53:08

In honor of the fact that there are, like, a zillion PC games to play right now, the GFW Radio crew spends two hours actually talking about them! Seriously. Just PC games. Hellgate: London, Crysis, Call of Duty 4, the new Sam & Max, The Witcher, and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. OK, so the last one's not a PC game, but really, it's just as good. Also: We gaze astonished at Ryan, who has 14 consoles connected to his television but has never played Diablo II...

GFW Radio Outtake "special!" Due to technical difficulties, or alien sabotage, this week's GFW Radio, which would have been a whopping 2.5 hour geek-a-palooza, was lost forever in hard drive hell. However, our hero Sean Molloy did manage to find and recover the last 40 minutes, which we present to you simply for curiosity's sake, like a car wreck. For collectors and completists only. Length: 42:15
|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2008-04-08|
With the closing of GFW the print magazine today, the GFW Radio crew--Sean, Shawn, Ryan, and Jeff--gather for an impromptu online wake just hours after the announcement. No game talk or comics talk or Lost talk this week, kids. Just some straight-up processing and group therapy, with the kind of gallows humor you might expect from a bunch of guys who just lost their magazine. But the Brodeo lives on, and here's the livin' proof, goddamit! Length: 1:21:43
|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2007-05-01|
The GFW crew buckle down to business with actual discussion of PC games, including Team Fortress 2, Vanguard, and LOTR Online, but don't let that scare you off! Lowbrow hijinks abound, random and unnecessary tangents are taken and abandoned, and Whiskey Nerd returns once again with an audition tape for the next Radiohead CD. All this plus a special message for the fat jerk of a boss of one of our loyal listeners...
|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2007-06-05|
What's the deal with....crummy console ports? The GFW crew ponder the PC versions of Shadowrun, Halo 2, and Resident Evil 4 while fending off the suspicious, noxious fumes in the recording studio, which are only partially attributable to Darren's rancid egg salad sandwich. Also this week: Ralphie raps, a geek hierarchy is presented, and the editors discuss their most anticipated games of the year, not including Cudgel of Xanthor...
|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2007-03-27|
Insanity reigns supreme this week as the GFW crew eat some bad mushrooms and then wax philosophical on the differences between web and print reviews, and the uselessness of "collector's editions."

|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2008-05-28|
With Ryan Scott in Las Vegas for the annual Siegfried & Roy fan festival, GFW Radio is remarkably quiet this week, with Shawn, Sean, Jeff, and Anthony all too shy and scared to speak up. Okay not really. Still, a post-vacation low-key podcast ensues, with more tales of Age of Conan griefing, Sean's Penny Arcade Adventures impressions, and Jeff's 1-minute look at Civilization Revolution. Also: Jeff, in a moment of senility, forgets that he's not on a cartography podcast and goes into a long lamen...
|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2007-05-15|
Halo 2 for Vista, Halo 3 beta, or none of the above? The GFW Radio crew spread the good (and bad) word on the games with the purple guns. Also, meaningless, uninformed speculation on the new Blizzard game, informative analytical analysis on the Hellgate pricing brouhaha, and more random words of hate for "pre E3." All this plus Heroes of the Web and an observation on people in purple clothing. It's Purple Day! Length: 1:33:19
|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2008-06-04|
This week, the crew -- down one Jeff Green and up one Robert Ashley -- discusses developing a love/hate relationship with Trials II, innocence and creativity in LEGO Indiana Jones, and the connection between French rap and the upcoming S.T.A.L.K.E.R. prequel.

|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2007-05-22|
Some company named "Blizzard" (?) apparently announced a sequel to some old game called "StarCraft," whatever that is, and then all these freaks on the Internet started going crazy about it, as if anyone cares. Whatever. Anyway, there's that, plus why Ryan subscribes to eight (8!) MMOs, why Steam rules, why Vanguard doesn't, and why Jeff is having a crisis over his comic books. And where's Shawn Elliott? He's home sick, hacking up his lungs and drinking tea with Whiskey Nerd...

|Games for Windows Podcast Episode 2006-12-13|
This week, the GFW philosophers gaze into the mystic and ask: How many Splinter Cells are too many? In other spiritual matters, they confront the musicians, academics, and other instruments of Satan in Left Behind, and ask the heavens who in the world would think a Firefly MMO was a good idea, and ponder the broken promises of episodic gaming. Burp count: Zero. Length: 58:04

The GFW editors are back from E3--everyone except Ryan, that is, since he was stuck at the office the whole time, like Cinderella, sweeping the floors and singing with mice.

Start with one cranky editor-in-chief. Stir in four additional editors of equally foul temperment. Add broken recording equipment, and then let fester in stuffy room for one hour.

It's the eve of this great nation's birthday, and what better way to celebrate than to spend an hour or so with the foul-mouthed, angry, mean-spirited slobs of GFW, who have nothing good to say about anyone! We kid. Actually, there's a whole lotta love this week, as we share happy thoughts about the Quake Wars beta, Fallout 3, Insurgency, Threadspace: Hyperbol, and more.

With Shawn out again on a mysterious vacation, GFW Radio morphs into CGW Radio with the return of two former CGW (and later OPM) editors, Dana Jongewaard and Thierry "Scooter" Nguyen, as they join the gang for a couple hours of talk about....absolutely nothing! Games are discussed, Lost is discussed, online vs. print writing is discussed, and a scary bag of candy is eaten.
